Cool, also a very good reason for not including it there.  Given the
propensity for people to generally only create ASCII armoured key
files to leave all over the place, I'm fairly confident that that will
become very popular.  I know it had been asked about on one or two of
the StackExchange sites two or three years ago and that entire network
of sites is basically dedicated to history repeating, albeit getting
fine tuned along the way, so it'll be a convenient answer the next
time that happens.
